The other rhyton from the Panagyurishte treasure represents the head of a young ram with barely protruding horns. The handle of the vessel ends with the figure of a lion. Dionysus (Zagreus) is a Thracian god of the reviving and dying nature, of wine, viticulture and merriment.
One of the most inspiring vessels from the Panagyurishte treasure is the Stag Head Rhyton. Its handle is a lion with paws on the ridge of the vessel. At the base is an artfully made small female head. The horn has many embossed figurines depicting the myths of Paris and the three goddesses.
The rhyton with the protome of a goat inspires with the symbolism hidden in this seemingly primitive animal, and the deities sculpted on the edges of the vessel evoke real admiration.
This rhyton is a signature replica of an element from the Borovo treasure with an outstanding testimony of exquisite workmanship, but it differs from the other two with its simpler decoration and has a shorter horn.
